Several years ago, my parents adopted a little boy. He's been with them since he was four. Recently, he confessed to be having trouble sleeping at night because he's being watched. He claims that during the day, there are six ghost dogs that are nice and run around and play. But at night, they turn into one big mean dog that watches him while he sleeps. He sleeps with the closet light on and refuses to go into any dark room without someone first going in to turn on the lights.
No one else has seen the mean dog, but I admit that several times I may have seen a ghost dog in the house. My parents currently have 5 dogs, 6 counting an on again, off again stray guy. Not long ago, a little before my adopted brother admitted to seeing the ghost dogs, they had even more dogs. One died due to old age, and her mate curled up in her old bed and stopped eating until he died a week later. Very sweet really. Anyway, they're crawling with canines. Only two are allowed inside. It will be one of these that I will assume is around, or that I would have sworn that I had just seen out of the corner of my eye only to realize that everybody (of the canine variety) is outside, or at least zonked on the couch, and not wandering past the doorway.
When I was still living at home (I was about 15) I was lying in bed when someone jumped up on the bed, shaking it and touching my leg. I reached down to pet whoever, but no one was there. Turning on the light proved that there were no animals in the room, and the door was closed. So I am open to the possibility of ghost dogs.
As a dog lover, I'm a bit skeptical that 6 good dogs could turn into one mean dog. These are potentially my dead friends we're talking about here, and I can't imagine my old pets being mean. And do ghosts combine to form other forms? I'd never heard of such a thing. Maybe he's seeing something else at night. I've heard of mean (human) ghosts that trap other spirits to draw off their power, and it breaks my heart to think that something like that could be utilizing my old pets' energy to trap them and manifest in a canine form. Is that possible? Or does he just have an overactive imagination?
